10 Songs, 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This soundtrack to Sam Peckinpah’s 1973 western of the same name offers a rare glimpse of Dylan the film composer. Though it contains the outlaw ballad “Billy” and one of his most haunting songs, the elegiac “Knockin' on Heaven’s Door,” most of this acoustic-based album is occupied by atmosphere-laden instrumentals. From the gentle, almost stately “Bunkhouse Theme” to the speedy, bluegrass-tinged “Turkey Chase,” you can almost see the Mexican dust kicking up around the boot heels of the movie’s hard-bitten desperados and lawmen.

It surprises me that this has not been reviewed. The music on this album is stunningly gorgeous. The songs are unassuming and develop at a leisurely pace and yet they feel rich and they let your mind roam. A secret gem from a brilliant dude.

Billy 4 & Billy 7

Even though this soundtrack Feat. Knockin' on Heaven's Door, I find my self listeing to Billy 4&7 over and over again . Just plays well if you know the movie itself.
